Authored by Sue Hardwig, Celebrating Chamness Roots 1650-2007, is the first definitive story of the Chamness family and its descendants. The book begins with the kidnapping of a young boy off the London Bridge (Anthony Chamness), his indenture time in Maryland to gain his freedom in America, the marriage to the "love of his life," the birth of their children in Maryland, Virginia, and later at Cane Creek, North Carolina. The book discusses Quaker beginnings and the descendants' movement to Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Arkansas, Texas and westward. The book recalls the story of the branch of family, John Chamness and Sally Berry, which was lost for more than a hundred years, its hardships, celebrations and pioneer life. The direct descendants of Anthony Chamness and Sarah Cole are provided with an indexed link to present-day Chamness family members (a great tool for genealogy enthusiasts).
